Since this is my first post, I figured a great way to get to know a bit more about me would be through a tag.
But not just any tag, since we are in October I thought it was a great opportunity for me to answer 20 Halloween questions.
1. Favourite horror or Halloween-themed song?
‘Everyday Is Halloween’ by Ministry
2. Have you ever played with a Ouija Board?
No, I’d be tempted to try it to see what happens, but I probably wouldn’t want to risk it. Especially since my Nanna tried one in the past, then she had to cleanse the house with sage after there were odd supernatural occurrences.
3. Favourite horror monster or villain?
This is a tricky one but my first thought was Norman Bates from Psycho.
4. If you were dared to spend the night in a “haunted house”, would you do it?
Definitely, I wouldn’t need daring to do this as it’s something I’ve actually wanted to try.
5. Are you superstitious?
Not particularly, I mean when it comes to situations like black cats crossing paths, smashed mirrors, and avoiding walking under ladders, I think it’s not something I worry myself over.
6. Do you prefer gore or thrillers?
Thrillers, although when it comes to horrors I think supernatural is always the best.
7. Do you believe in ghosts?
I’m rather sceptical about ghosts, although I have had a few paranormal experiences which I’d be happy to share in later posts.
8. Ever made a potion of any sort?
Yes, I actually practice Wicca magick occasionally, my most recent potion was for cleansing the home of negative spirits.
9. Have you ever played Bloody Mary?
No, I wind my friends up saying it twice so they freak out and tell me not to say it the third time, but honestly I wouldn’t just in case something ever did happen and I get the blame.
10. Do you believe in demons/the devil?
Again, I’m sceptical about this. But from what I heard from the bible the devil doesn’t seem much to fear. I mean if he is punishing sinners, then he is kind of doing half of God’s job, surely?
11. Would you ever go to a graveyard at night?
Yes, I have actually done this several times. The first time was when I went to do a ghostly photoshoot in a church graveyard with a friend.
12. Do you have to watch something happy after watching a horror movie so you can go to sleep?
Usually I can go to sleep fine, it’s the getting up in the night to go to the bathroom that is the creepy part because I worry some psycho is lurking at the bottom of the stairs waiting for me.
13. Are you the one who gets scared, or the one who does the scaring?
Always the one doing the scaring. I’m the type of person who will hide behind things and jump out at people.
14. What was your first Halloween costume?
Probably a witch, I always wanted to be magical and spooky, so this really appealed to me when I was a child. That’s probably another reason I grew up to be so darkly inclined.
15. What are you going to be for Halloween this year?
I’m planning on doing a Lydia Deetz inspired look, just looking for someone to be Beetlejuice.
16. If you could have a spooky halloween pet (black cat, owl, bat, rat, wolf), what would you pick?
I’m a big cat lover so it would definitely be a black cat to be my witches familiar.
17. Favourite thing about Halloween?
Definitely the amount of decor and clothing that appears in stores. Other people see it has Halloween decorations, I see it as new home decor and everyday alternative fashion. It’s like the one time of the year I can find things I love in your average stores.
18. Vampires or Zombies?
Recently had an obsession with zombies so I’d have to pick them. I kind of low-key want a zombie apocalypse to see what happens and figure out how I’d survive.
19. Favourite scary video game?
Sticking to my recent favourites it has got to be ‘The Walking Dead’ or ‘The Last of Us’ on PS3. They started my current zombie fascination.
20. Final question, best Halloween costume you’ve had?
Generally I don’t dress up much, I mean my current wardrobe is all suitable for Halloween. I tend to just go a bit more extreme and creative with my makeup.
Hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little better through this tag. Let me know what your own answers would be in the comments section.
